The Second Judicial Court marked Flag Day on Thursday outside the courthouse in downtown Reno with a live band, guest speakers, and a student poetry contest while remembering a late chief judge who resurrected the annual event locally. Flag Day had been a staple at the courthouse but it took a several year hiatus before then-Chief Judge Patrick Flanagan last year insisted it be brought back. Flanagan, who was elected to the bench in 2006 and re-elected in 2014, passed away in October 2017. Chief Judge Scott Freeman said Flanagan will always be remembered for his commitment to the court, community and future generations. Here’s text from DCG’s agent, Dominic Brunetti’s daughter, Giana. It will be featured in the Washoe County Bar Association’s monthly newsletter, “The Writ”: The United States is the home for me, In a land of love and liberty, One nation filled with dignity, Surrounded by friends and family. When America started the Revolution, Every state made an attribution, So the founders could make a constitution, That even today is a great solution. When I’m in America, I feel safe and free, I have religious freedom and can do what I believe. I know this is how our founders wanted America to be, Which is why our brave army lay down their lives for you and me. America was strong throughout the battles we went through, And when a government was created, a beautiful nation grew. When I see America’s symbol, a flag of red, white and blue, I am sure I am proud to be an American in everything I do. CLICK HERE for full story Source:]]>
